ACW's 20 Fireloc productsACW’s 20 Fireloc products have been UL-certified. Primarily designed for high-heat applications, the Fireloc line of products has been tested and approved by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for use in the United States and Canada. The rigorous testing, certification, and follow-up audit process conducted by UL for each product ensures a standard of excellence and safety for industry use. The line includes heat-resistant plastic buckles, slides, and hooks., 401-762-5500

WALTP-2XWP400 LED light towerWALTP-2XWP400 LED light tower reportedly produces as much light as comparable halogen towers and rivals metal halide units for total area coverage. Costing less than traditional HID towers, this LED light tower provides further savings through greatly reduced energy consumption and has no need for frequent bulb replacements. The light tower is equipped with two waterproof and vaporproof 40-watt LED light heads to produce a total of 2,924 lumens. The light tower can be extended from four to nine feet in total height. Each LED light head is constructed of aluminum and finished in a durable powder coat for durability and resistance to corrosion. Polycarbonate lenses provide impact resistance for the LED lamp assemblies, and integral cooling fins provide efficient cooling to extend and preserve these LED’s 50,000-hour lamp life rating., 800-369-6671
PS200 portable multigas detectorPS200 portable multigas detector monitors and displays up to four hazardous gas conditions simultaneously. Both lightweight and durable, it uses catalytic bead sensor technology to monitor and detect a wide range of combustible gases and electrochemical sensor technology to monitor and detect carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, and oxygen deficiency. Weighing no more than eight ounces, the PS200 is housed in a sturdy, water-resistant, and dust-proof case for harsh environments and confined spaces. Operator interface and calibration are intuitive by simply toggling between one-button functions. During normal operation the LCD screen continuously displays battery life, real-time gas concentrations in parts per million (ppm), and concentration of oxygen by percentage. Maximum and minimum gas concentrations for each sensor can also be programmed and monitored., 713-559-9200
Extraction Zones appExtraction Zones app allows emergency first responders to select the make and model of damaged vehicles from an extensive databank in the pop-up list. The side and top view of these specific vehicles will display all areas of concern that are crucial to a safe and efficient extrication of trapped victims. Areas featured in these two views include structural reinforcements, high-voltage hybrid batteries and high voltage cables, air bags and air bag canisters, seat belt pretensioners, fuel tanks, and 12-volt batteries. Extraction Zones Pro features an additional 150 vehicle makes and models.
FlexMod Voltage Sensing Relay & Timer (VSRT) conserves the starting power of a vehicle battery by shutting off auxiliary loads when either starting voltage drops to a low level or a preset timer times out. The FlexMod VSRT is suitable for fire, police, and emergency vehicles. The unit measures four inches by three inches by one inch, alerts the vehicle operator when starting voltage is low, and then cuts off any nonessential loads, thus conserving power to start. Its service life exceeds 1,000,000 on/off cycles, operating for the entire lifetime of the vehicle. This device has a rating of 10 A and can handle many loads directly or drive a relay or solenoid for higher amperages. Overvoltage and overcurrent protective measures are also included, providing extra levels of assurance., 617-268-2100
Avon-ISI Viking Z SevenAvon-ISI Viking Z Seven equips firefighting teams with advanced respiratory protection and communications technology. A revised cylinder connection assembly offers a larger cylinder hand wheel for ease of use with gloved hands together with a luminescent pressure gauge and cylinder band for enhanced visibility in darkened or smoke-filled environments. The Viking Z Seven control console provides an easy-to-use advanced communications system with large pushbutton design for use with gloved hands and a voice amplification system speaker with ten voice threshold settings that reduce breathing noise. All electronics use one source of power through its C4 Power Pack with an easier to check back frame location, supported by free battery supply for ten years. It has a personal alert safety system (PASS) and all other National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) required features, including heads-up display and complete CBRN protection., 678-495-3700
First Look Pro Version 5First Look Pro Version 5 (FLP 5) is a software program that allows fire service personnel to organize and locate preincident plans, site diagrams, maps, and photographs. One of FLP 5’s new features is the ability for users to create their own data fields. Departments can add custom fields of information that are unique to their fire departments. A simple dialog has easy-to-use tools for adding text boxes, rich text note boxes, check boxes, and pull-down lists. Another new feature is computability with the WISER application designed to assist first responders with handling hazardous materials. First responders who have WISER can now launch it from FLP 5 and automatically display information about materials listed in the preplan., 800-641-9077
